In the coming years the congregation wants to pay special attention to the mercy of God. In the mercy of God we see the key to God’s love for humanity.
In the letters we address to you, we allow ourselves to be guided by the seven corporal and spiritual works of mercy. In the letter on the occasion of Fr. Dehon’s birthday on March 14, 2016, among the spiritual works of mercy we called attention to: “patiently enduring challenging people.”
In connection with this task, we now invite you to consider another corporal work of mercy: “welcome the stranger.” What does welcoming pilgrims mean for us? What does it mean for us as Dehonians to welcome the stranger and help those without homes?
